Link – Patient therapy helps young victims of child abuse

I like the sound of this program, because when abuse is discovered, too much of our attention is on the justice system, which is understandable, but the most important thing we could be doing is getting kids help.

The sessions that take place in this room aim to help children make the journey from a place where they’re a victim to a future where they’re a survivor. Experience shows that as they grow up, “they will still grieve terribly for the loss of their childhood”, Whitfield says, but therapy means they’ve got a chance to be “no longer absolutely defined by that act”.
